Abstract
A self-consistent ensemble Monte Carlo calculation of steady state carrier distribution functions in InGaAsP-based multiple-quantum-well lasers is performed. The results are compared to those obtained with a drift-diffusion classical simulator. The outcome of the two methods is found to be similar. Still, the Monte Carlo approach offers much more insight into several issues such as the energy distribution of carriers and the effects of particle-particle interactions.
